because it's used by $(call gb_LinkTarget_use_package,$(1),curl), from

but the problem is that the package is not defined i.e.
external/curl/ is not read, because CURL is not
in BUILD_TYPE, because of this bit of

elif test $_os = iOS; then
    # Let's see if we need curl, I think not?

that was added in 2013.

so perhaps meanwhile there are new uses of curl that are not optional
even on iOS? maybe the ENABLE_CURL thing can be removed?
